North Campus (Photo Courtesy of the Natural History Museum)On Sunday, October 28, the A+D Museum will host a tour of the newly constructed Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County’s North Campus as part of their Urban Hike series. In addition to furthering a mission to research, document, and protect animals and the natural world, the museum's new addition celebrates the institution's upcoming 100-year anniversary. Mia Lehrer + Associates designed the 3.5-acre gardens, which are scheduled to open to the public in 2013. During the hike, Michelle Sullivan, the firm's project manager and principal, will show hikers how creative design facilitates and translates the museum's philosophy into a tangible, interactive setting.

North Campus (Photo Courtesy of the Natural History Museum)Inside the new campus, which opens next year, visitors will be able to watch birds and butterflies, learn to observe and track species with the museum's scientists, engage in gardening workshops and nature walks with museum educators, and explore around a new civic green space that is a rare oasis within downtown Los Angeles. The scientific hub also located on the North Campus is called the Nature Lab, which is designed to expose the nature living all around us within the city.

North Campus (Photo Courtesy of the Natural History Museum)URBAN HIKES: FORGOTTEN LA is a unique series of tours devoted to the exploration and celebration of sometimes-forgotten parts of Los Angeles. The tours provide a unique and enriching view into neighborhoods such as Little Tokyo, Leimert Park, MacArthur Park, Korea Town, the Downtown Historic Core, Boyle Heights, and many more.

This Sunday's hike begins at 11:00 am and costs $20 for individuals, $10 for members of A+D, and $5 for students. Details will be confirmed after purchase.
